Moss Of Moonlight/Winterwheel/Cascadian Alliance/2013 CD Review


  Moss  Of  Moonlight  are  a b and  from  Washington  that  plays  a  blackened  form  of  folk  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  album  "Winterwheel"  which  was  released  by  Cascadian  Alliance.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  drumming  with  some  percussion  work  being  used  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs   that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars,  as  for  the  synths  and  flutes  when  they  are  utilized  bring  a  very  dark, atmospheric  and  medieval  sound  to  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  riffs  that  combine  melodic  black  metal  with  folk  metal  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  pagan/folk  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads,  as  for  the  acoustic  guitars  when  they  are  utilized  use  finger  picking  and  full  chords  to  enhance  the  folk  elements  of  the  recording.

  Vocals  range  from  blackened  metal  growls  and  screams  along  with  a  good  amount  of  clean  singing  and  some  spoken  word  parts,  while  the  lyrics  cover  Anglo  Saxon  Paganism,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  professional  sound  to  it  with  the  songs  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Moss  Of  Moonlight  are  a  very  great  sounding  blackened  folk  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Gaet"  and  "Catte".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
